If it shuts off automatically, not necessary it be a problem with the power. ur computer must have been attacked by a virus. try updating ur anti-virus and removing the virus.

What causes PC to shut down during idle?


This might be down to the power settings, by default the hard drive is set to shut down after 15 mins of inactivity, to check open control panel and select Power Options, this will show you the current plan settings, click the Change plan settings and then Change Advanced power settings, expand the Hard disk option and then Turn off hard disk after, this will show the time this can be set to 0 which will stop it shutting down.
You can also adjust display settings etc. in this area at the same time.

My acer all in one z5600 runs for awhile and then shuts down very annoying!!!


Start by cleaning the fan or fans, heatsink, and vents, you may have to open the computer. When you open, you may as well replace the Thermal Paste on the CPU and Graphics Chips. Overheating will cause shut downs, heat sensors set to detect a set temp. will shut down to protect vital components from heat related damage. ALSO, Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Change plan settings, under Plugged In, set both to Never, open Advanced Power settings, go through thr Advanced settings set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust to your preference. It's a good idea to Always shut down your computer when not in use, it will last longer and a reboot everyday will reset the machine. Make sure ALL your Windows and Acer Updates are current.

My m14x keeps shutting down when i usethe keyboard


Open Control Panel, Power Options, Set to High Performance, Open Advanced Power settings, Set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, adjust other advanced settings to your preference. If this fails to fix, Return it at once while your warranty is valid. After Dell bought Alienware they sort of went south.

Give it some time and see what happens. If after 15 minutes it is still there, press and hold the Power Button until it shuts off then Reboot. Try shutting down again and see if it hangs.

The buttons can be set to do what you want, so look in the control panel under power options, typically you want advanced options or words like change what the power buttons do.

Booting problem


There are usually three main reasons that a CMOS Checksum Bad Error has occurred. They include:
  • CMOS Battery may not be functioning properly. The battery life may have expired.
  • Your BIOS may have been updated (either by user or possibly a virus)
  • The computer may not have been shut down properly e.g. shutting off the computer's main power without first shutting down the computer (MS Windows requires you to shut down your computer before shutting off the power).
Solutions to CMOS Checksum Bad Error The CMOS Checksum Bad Error can be fixed easily by following the listed steps carefully.
CMOS Battery may not be functioning properly
If you suspect that your CMOS battery is not functioning properly, you can easily change it. Before changing your battery, reboot your computer to make sure that the error still exists. If it does, go into your CMOS and write down all of the settings. If all the settings are lost, you can usually retrieve them from your computer manufacturer. Now locate the battery and remove it, you might need to consult your computer’s manual or technical support to remove your battery (the battery a flat, shiny silver colored and coin-shaped). Take down the CMOS battery’s information such as volt, size, etc. Once you have your new battery, you can replace it and reenter your CMOS settings. If your battery was the cause of the CMOS Checksum Bad Error, you should have solved the problem.

Your BIOS may have been updated
If your BIOS have been updated recently, your CMOS settings may have reset. Make sure that the values entered in the BIOS are correct or simply reset them to the default settings. If you believe that a virus has updated your BIOS settings, run a virus scan and make sure that the BIOS settings are back to the default.
The Computer may not have been shut down properly
Sometimes when running MS Windows, if you shut down your computer without first properly shutting down your operating system, it will corrupt the CMOS settings causing the CMOS Checksum Bad Error. You can easily avoid this error by making sure that you completely shut down your computer properly before turning off the main power. Usually this entails going into the Start Menu, clicking on Turn Off Computer/ Shut Down. If improper shutdown was the cause of the error, you may have solved the issue

When I shut down my computer, I think that it is shutting down completly. All lights are off indicating that it is shut down. Then a small blue window will appear and will say "Entering Power Safe Mode"....


If you are turning off your computer by pressing the front panel power button, it is probably just putting Windows to sleep but not shutting the computer off. If your computer has Windows Vista, the default is to hibernate and not shut down even if you shut down through Vista. The "power save" message you see is coming from the monitor, which is letting you know it isn't getting a signal from the computer anymore but the power is still on. Windows will start up again from sleep mode if someone or something moves the mouse or presses a key.

The solution is to make sure the computer is actually shut down. In Vista you can do this by clicking the arrow near the power icon on the Start menu. This gives you the option of shutting down instead of hibernating. In XP, shut the computer down using the start menu shutdown option instead of the computer power button. Then the power will shut down completely.
